Aside from makeup products, I have quite a collection of makeup brushes. I have brushes from Real Techniques, Chic Cosmetics, Elf Cosmetics, Marionnaud, and some random brands. I went through a phase where I like to buy a lot of the same type of things. I had a concealer phase, lipstick phase, powder phase, eyeliner phase, and the list goes on. Reading a lot of beauty blogs is not helping because I often read reviews of products and it makes me want to try them out too. 😀
When I signed up at Luxola, I really don’t have a particular item in mind. I just browsed through the brands, and trusted my instincts on what to get. You can check my first Luxola haul here. Being obsessed over contouring and highlighting made me buy this ZOEVA 110 Face Shape Brush, SGD 17 (About Php 600+).
The 110 Face Shape is a round shaped, compact face brush to contour the face shape along the cheekbones, the chin line and the temples. Due to its compact size it is the ideal tool for very precise contouring and blending. The smooth, vegan taklon bristles work with liquid, cream or powder makeup products and offer soft and easy application for a flawless finish. Comes in a gorgeous zipper brush bag.
I do not regret purchasing this brush at all! It is PERFECT! The hairs are so soft, dense, and the perfect size for face contouring, especially on the cheeks and nose. It is like a round, tapered kabuki, but smaller.
I also love using this for blending my undereye concealer. Again, it is perfect! I dab the concealer on areas I want to cover, and buff it using this brush. This brush is currently part of my everyday makeup routine. I have yet to discover more uses for this. I will let you know, of course!
I took some comparison shots of this brush and the Real Techniques Contour Brush from the Core Collection. They serve the same purpose but have some slight differences.
Based on the comparison pictures, the ZOEVA 110 Face Shape Brush is denser and has shorter bristles. Those qualities make it apply more color, and make it more suitable to buff and blend products. The Real Techniques Contour Brush has more advantage in blending products better because it has more tapered bristles, and it is less dense. I really can’t pinpoint a lot of differences, and I love them equally, like my (future) kids. Hehe.
You can purchase ZOEVA 110 Face Shape Brush on its own, or buy the whole Face Set. I am going to put the Face Set on my wishlist. Maybe, I will buy it. Maybe, just maybe. Haha. 😀 I am eyeing a lot of makeup brushes, including Sigma. Do you think it is worth investing on Sigma brushes?
I hope you enjoyed reading this, and be back for more!
Have a wonderful day! :-*
